Not too hot
Doctors and pediatricians generally suggest that water temperature not exceed 120° F, for adults and especially for children. For they may suffer burns.
A child can receive a server burn quite quickly, so take a minute and check your homes water heater temperature setting. For example, if it is set at 125, don’t think that this is just a little more than what’s suggested, so nothing will happen; for even at 125° F, injuries can occur.
